Why I Love Her: Why don’t I love Lucy Maud Montgomery? The Anne series is one of my forever favorites. Anne is my friend. Gilbert is my first love.
Montgomery was a true poet. Her prose is utterly poetic. It reminds me of late springtime and the overabundance of colors and scents and sounds in the flowers and animals and plants. Montgomery has a gentle sense of humor and a grand sense of everyday romance. She delves into the human experience and describes it so gorgeously that the most commonplace experience becomes a romantic, universal, and significant one.
If you are ever in need of rich descriptions of a certain season of the year, look no further than Montgomery’s stories on Prince Edward Island. She transports the reader, engaging all senses.
